I don't remember ever hearing she was diagnosed, not that it had to be made public, but this one is super sad to me. I had such a crush on her after I saw Twins as a kid.

Cancer sucks.

I wonder if she was even treated.  One of the hallmarks of Scientology is a big anti-medicine stance.  There is a belief that if you are not well, that it is because YOU are not in a right place, so you don't need medical treatment to get better.

For years, new episodes of Mythbusters was must see TV for my family.  I hear today the very sad news that one of the Mythbusters' hosts, Grant Imahara, has died at the age of 49.  He's probably up in heaven now creating a new Rube Goldberg machine.  Rest in Peace, Grant.

Actually, he got paid $1 a month. It was $0.77 after taxes. He didn't cash his paychecks.

Wilford Brimley, 85

Crazy to think he was 50-ish when he filmed Cocoon and The Natural. He looked and acted like someone in his mid-60s at best.

I'm starting to notice the ages more. 85 versus 104. That's a big difference. In my thirties I'm certain I would have thought 85 sounds fine. Now, meh, I want 105

Chadwick was obviously more than the T'Challa character but that role was such a cultural touchstone and carried so much weight. The man spent his last 4 years creating iconic art knowing he wasn't long for the world, suffering in silence. Sigh.

It has been a huge year of death. Lute Olson died a couple of days ago. Former Portland Trailblazer Cliff Robinson died at 53. Played 18 seasons.
